The 1959 Livingstonian is a pictorial accovint of the life and 
activities of Livingstone College during the academic year of 1958- 
59. The yearbook is designed by the Yearbook Staff of 1959 to be 
a brief reminder of some of the memorable moments spent during 
our sojourn within these hallowed halls. It would be impossible to 
catch more than a glimpse of the wonderful experiences enjoyed at 
Livingstone College for many of our experiences have left such an 
indelible mark on our lives that they cannot be separately illustrated. 

The final trumpet has blown and the vicissitudes of our journey 
are now a part of the inimitable past. However, we hope that in 
some way our class history and our spirit of oneness will serve to 
inspire and lift those who are to come this way. It is our hope that 
this yearbook will illustrate the ideals and philosophy of the fonder 
and those charged with the perpetuation of Livingston College. Per- 
haps by leafing through the pages of this book, one can forget the 
cacophony of personal frustrations and strife and hear the all in- 
spiring symphony of faith and hope- faith in and hope for our be- 
loved Livingstone. Inclosing may we leave these few words which 
so adequately express what we would like to say. 

'Tis not the softer things of life 

Which stimulate man's will to strive 

But bleak adversity and strife 

Do most keep man's will alive 

O'er rose-strewn paths the weaklings creep 

But brave hearts dare to climb the steep. 

These words embrace the principles held dear by the class of 
1959. We hope that this verse will also act as an inspiring force 
to all who may read this annual. 

Bernard E. Anderson 

IljI I 



Dr. Trent 

I love vast libraries; yet there is doubt 
If one be better with them or without 

Unless he uses them wisely, and indeed, 
Knows the high art of what and how to read 

At learning's fountain it is sweet to drink 
But 'tis nobler privilege to think. 

And oft, from books apart, the thirsting mind 
May make the nectar which it cannot find. 

Tis well to borrow from the good and great 
Tis wise to learn; tis godlike to create 

J. G. Saxe 

We, the class of 1959, with love that cannot % 
iVv. be excelled, humility that cannot be described 
and with utmost in gratitude, dedicate this 1959 
^' UVINGSTONIAN to our beloved parents. They 
have, through the years, shared our responsi-, 
Jm-. bilities, our hopes, our desires, kept us believing V;?, 
^0")- that all things are possible, listened and under- ' 

stood when on one else could, and made us calm f 
v(r when seas of confusion were raging. Because of 

their sincerity, their faith, their love, we are the ;^ 
senior class of 1959. Therefore, with apprecia- ; ' 
;,; tion that reaches out and grasps every beloved, 
parent, the class of '59 dedicates this annual. ;U 

Jh Memoriam 


"Sunset and evening star 
And one clear call for me. 
May there be no mourning at the bar, 
When I put out to sea." 

Gwendolyn Patricia Shuler died on August 22, 1956, at 21 years of age. The death of 
this wonderful person and classmate is still a shock to the Senior Class. Miss Shuler 
was extraordinary in many ways and will be remembered. A great person has gone 
from us, and together we mourn her passing, consoling ourselves with this thought: 
"Quem didiliguntadolescensmoritus," which means, He whom the gods love dies while 
a youth. 

"Weep no more woeful classmates. 
Weep no more. 
Patricia is not dead. 

Passed though she be forever from our door. 
Out in the world by some powerful hand led, 
She could not stay the years of study through 
But passed, to find fresh fields and pastures new." 

Class of '59 



The history of the class of 1959 is so dramatic and colorful that it resem- 
bles a play- one of those modern plays that so skiLLfully disregard all the rules 
of the drama. With your kind permission, I, as dramatic critic of the LIVING- 
STONIAN, shall review the play called "The Class of 1959" in an absolutely 
non-prejudiced manner. 

Thisisaplay in four acts with three all too brief intermissions. Through- 
out the action, there is very incidental music by the college choral union. The 
play was written by the actors as they played their parts, under the direction 
of President Emeritus W. J.Trent, Acting President John H. Brockett, Presi- 
dent S. E. Duncan, and a Board of Trustees with the cooperation of loyal sup- 
porters of the A.M.E. Zion Churches throughout the United States and abroad. 
It is given by an all star cast. 

This play belongs to no particular classification, being, at various stages- 
no pun intended- comedy and tragedy and sometimes a review- spelled any way 
you please . 

The scenes all take place in Price Administration Building, Goler Hall, the 
Ubrary, Dodge Hall, Harris Hall, Ballard Hall, and the W. J. Trent Gymnasium. 
The stage settings are plain, showing signs of much use. 

Act 1 shows the arrival of the class as they enter the gates and feel the 
unusual tranquility beneath the maples and oaks. Their timidity and curious 
mistakes furnish some moments of bright comedy. There is rapidly rising 
action and the villian gradually puts in an appearance. He is called Study and 
is of alarming size and proportions. It is evident that he will interfere with 
the enjoyment and leisure of the actors, now known as Freshmen. 

At the close of the act, tragedy seems imminent because there is a des- 
perate affair- a mental crisis created by Study's brother, the villian, Exami- 
nations. But the Freshmen, with one last spurt of their tired brains, win. 
Somberness does not predominate in this act; there are athletic and social ac- 
tivities. The actors come back to the stage for curtain call; and from them, 
the audience discovers the following facts concerning the progress of the Fresh- 
men: Peggy Byers was elected by the football team as an attendant to Miss 
Homecoming; Marshall Lofton, AcoUa Moore, and Bernard Anderson were a- 
mong the top ten ranldng students; Daisy Bowman and Nancy McNeil distin- 
guished themselves in dramatics by participating in "Deep Are the Roots"; 
Louis Martin, Fred Smith, Edmund Hasty, and William King have made a good 
showing on the football team; Louis Martin, Charles McDwain, and William 
King have received letters for their splendid performances on the "hardwood"; 
honorable mention to the E.I.A.C. was also given to Louis Martin. 

And now the president of this illustrious class, William Durant, pulls the 
curtain on the rejoicing Freshmen who are nevertheless not whoUy free from 
afeeling that though this encounter with Study has been safely passed, the worst 
is yet to come. The actors are pleasing, but decidedly, amateurish. 

After an intermission of twelve weeks, during which the actors go away on 
vacations or stay at home and help with the work, the play is resumed. 

Act II shows the same people in the same place, but they are now known as 
Sophomores, owing to an advance in rank. A touch of pathos is found in the 
absence of several of the cast who were so disabled in the encounter with 
study's ally. Examinations, that they were unable to appear in the second act. 

There are pleasant divertissements in the shape of dances, concerts, and 
banquets. In this act, members of the cast seem to have achieved a charm, an 
ease of manner, and a feeling of security that were noticeably lacldng in Act I. 
Incipient love affairs are noticed, and the costumes are much more elaborate, 
as is also the make-up used. 

Yet the mention of Study, like the word "soul" of "Siberia", in a Russian 
drama, casts a gloom over brightness. More time is spent than before in pre- 
paration is more systematic. There also seems to be more mental activity in 
the protagonists. 

As the curtains close on the Sophomores, we find that the following mem- 
bers of the cast have distinguished themselves: Cyphese Ramseur has been 
selectedasthe Sweetheart of the Lampados Club, Joelyn Sinton has earned the 
title of "Miss Livingstone" and the Sweetheart of Alpha Phi Alpha Faternity; 
and in dramatics, Acolia Moore, Mary Jordan, Nancy McNeil, Daisy Bowman, 
and Novella Legrand have taken part in "A Man Called Peter". In the sports, 
we find that Carlotta Arthur, Gladys Torrence, Martha Bacote, and Thelma 
Burris were successful in making the girls' basketbaU team; James Holmes, 
Nelson Pharr, John Mayfield and Roger Kirk have become members of the foot- 
ball team. The Most Valuable Player and Sidney Greene Awards have been won 
by Roger Kirk; the E.I.A.C. Honors went to Roger Kirk, Louis Martin, and Ed- 
mund Hasty. 

Another intermission, and we stagger in to Act HI. Again the same people 
in the same place- which may make the play sound monotonous to you, but 1 
assure you it is not. The actors are so changed that each act seems like an 
entirley new play. They are called Juniors. Their positions and their pride 
both advanced, but there remains the haunting dread of Study, the villian. 

The director allows the actors much more freedom than they have pre- 
viously enjoyed. Many improve their performance because of this, but a few 
come to grief, and their poor performance detracts much from the possibili- 
ties of the play. There are many delightful interludes to make this a cheer- 
ful act. 

But with the added maturity of the players, there comes more strenuous 
preparation for encounters with the villain, who lurks ever in the background 
ready to invite a contest at the most inopportune and unexpected moments. 

By this time, some of the actors, all of whom entered the cast on a footing 
of equality, have come more prominently into the spotlight, and their parts are 
assuming almost stellar proportions in the following manner: Henry Moses has 
been selected by his classmates as their president for the second consecutive 
year; Mary Burwell has been sleected as the Sweetheart of Omega Psi Phi 

Fraternity; Gloria Credle has been selected as the Sweetheart of Phi Beta 
Sigma Fraternity; Acolia Moore, Nancy McNeil, Mary Jordan, Novella Legrand, 
Marshall Lofton have taken part in "The Night of January 16". Henry Moses, 
Barbara McClain, John Mayfield, Cynthia Martin, Edward Thompson, Leon 
Gilmore have been initiated into Beta Kappa Chi Honor Society for Natural 
Scientists; Daisy Bowman, Membra Bethea, Marshall Lofton, Mary Jordan, 
Acolia Moore, Bernard Anderson, Shirley Smith, Fred Young, and William Du- 
rant have been initiated into Sigma Rho Sigma Honor Society for Social Science 
Majors; Marshall Lofton and Henry Moses have been selected as the Chief 
Marshals for Commencement, along with other Marshals who are Daisy Bow- 
man, DelGratia Moreland, Mary Jordan, Shirley Smith, Willie Worthy, and 
William Durant. 

Other unexpected things are happening. Many who came on in the first 
act with enthusiasm and high hopes have wearied of the struggle and left the 
cast in search of positions offering speedy remuneration and less brain fatigue. 
We miss them, but realize that they maybe entirelyjustified in their withdrawal. 

Before the curtain falls, there is the dreaded but certain conflict. Study's 
emissary, Examinations, is defeated again, but this time more drastically than 
ever before, perhaps because those who fell by the way before were less vigor- 
ous fighter sand probably because the survivors profited by their sad fate. As 
the final climax of Act III, the actors give their most elaborate social affair- 
The Fantastic Junior-Senior Prom. 

Again an intermission of twelve weeks, which both actors and audience 
greatly enjoy, perhaps because they realize that there is but one more act to 

Act IV arrives at last and is warmly received. By this time, the actors 
are so matured, so at ease, so changed for the better that they are difficult to 
recognize. We seem to view with rose-colored spectacles the scene that so 
soon will vanish. It looks impossibly attractive. 

We have grown honestly fond of all the cast, some of whom we regarded 
with anything but favor as the curtain rose on the first act of this queer play. 
Even that arch-villain, Study seems less formidable. Would not it be curious 
if we grew to like him ? The actors are certainly on much more familiar terms 
with him now than they have been before. 

The action is more rapid and more complicated than in the preceding acts. 
There is more comedy than before and there are some delightful interpolations. 

The actors who showed promise of being stars in the preceding act have ful- 
filled that promise and shine brightly. They are as foUows: Joelyn Sinton has 
been chosen by the football team as Miss Homecoming; Carlotta Arthur has 
earned the title of Miss Livingstone; Rosetta Robinson has earned the title of 
Miss UNCF; Madelyn Barnhill has been selected as the Sweetheart of Omega 
Psi Phi Fraternity; Louise Rice has been selected as the Sweetheart of Phi 
Beta Sigma Fraternity; Louis Martin has been chosen as Co-Captain of the 
football team and he has also been chosen as the Most Valuable Player; E.I. A. 
C. Honors have been awarded to Edmund Hasty, Fred Smith, and Charles Mc- 
Ilwain. In basketball Nollie Davis has been selected as the captain and E.I. A. 
C. Honors have been awarded to Roger Kirk; Henry Moses has been awarded 
the College Scholarship Award for the second consecutive year; the following 
have made "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities": Marshall Lof- 
ton, Acolia Moore, Barbara McClain, Henry Moses and Bernard Anderson. The 
entire production attains a smoothness and a finish that are pleasing. In spite 
of all the gaiety, grim preparation is going on to the end that those who are new 
stars may remain so and that others may continue in the cast. Many hearts are 
weak with anxiety. Astheactnears its close, faces and brows drawn with worry 
are noticeable for this is the final struggle. Victory means freedom from the 
dreaded enemy, Study, and his ally, Examinations. 

At last the fatal hour arrives; Final Examination raises his sinster head. 
The seniors meet the attack courageously and well organized. As a result of 
concentration and hard work, the Class emerges victoriously. 

And then there is the symbolic touch without which no play is complete; 
there is the ironic twist of the new school of dramatists. Study, met face to 
face, is found to be a friend and not the enemy it was thought to be. It is now 
accepted as a valuable ally to possess throughout Ufe. The strenuous prepara- 
tion for battle was a blessing in disguise, and everyone is happy. 

And now as the curtain slowly comes together on the fourth act of the play, 
the entire cast, with our diligent preisdent, George Tharrington, and our advisor. 
Miss Charlotte L. Chatman, pause on the threshhold of life with a burst of pride 
and glory because we have reached a milestone on the path that leads to the 
margin of excellence.
